Friday Favorites... Life Lately

Hello Lovelies... Happy Friday, if you see me today or this weekend and I'm extra happy it's for a few reasons. We have a three day weekend which means extra time with my peeps, which I LOVE! Plus the weather this morning and all weekend is suppose to be AMAZING! Last but not least its September, which means all things Fall & Pumpkin Spice for me. If you don't like fall or pumpkin spice I don't think we could be friends ( OK calm down, I'm just joking I still love you non Fall loving  pumpkin spice haters) Fall is one of my favorites times of the year, especially since moving to Arkansas, all the beautiful colors during this season is just another reminder of God's beautiful work. Since we are talking Fall, I started getting some our my Fall Decor out...

Our week started of rough, one of our dearest friends moved to Utah and it caused a lot of tears and heartache especially for K1. These three girls have been best friends for the last 8.5 years and had to say " See you later" to someone who was more like a sister then a friend.
friends who become family are one of life's greatest blessings.

Continuing with rough start I found myself battling a 3 day migraine. When they hit, I literally cant function. Peppermint tea although it didn't make the migraine go away it at least brought some comfort.

This stuff is the only thing that actually helped ease my migraine into a headache, which I can deal 

After the awful start of our week everything magically turned around!!! August 31st is one of our favorites days of the year, we get to celebrate our last Vega beauty, K3. Oh my goodness I almost forgot to share with you my mom fail. After having a migraine for 3 days, I got called into sub for a Prek class, my very first time EVER. Enough about that, with a migraine, subbing, cheer practices I forgot to buy sweet K3 her bday gifts!! I am usually ahead of the game when it comes to shopping but this time I was behind. One of our birthday traditions is we always have the girls wake up tp special birthday gifts from us. We also always decorate their bedroom door with streamer so that morning I was so exhausted from lack of sleep, Mr V went and woke up our sleeping beauty, video taped her busting through her streamer ( he knew I would be devastated missing that moment), she came into our room and woke me up excited to open up her special gifts. I looked at Mr. V and said oh gosh there isn't any gifts, I felt like the WORST mother EVER!! Mr. V being the amazing husband and father he is woke up at 5 am and went shopping, got her some special gifts, wrapped them and had them waiting on the table for her to open. Talk about being thankful for that man of mine. She never knew mommy had a huge mom fail and he will never know how much that meant to me. I thanked him a million times that day and all he said was, " that's what makes us a great team." 

Birthday cupcakes for her classmates to celebrate with her

She picked out her Matilda Jane dress and ruffle pants as her special birthday outfit

Silly faces are her favorite, mine too. I just love her so much

On their birthday mornings they get to pick out whatever they want to eat, she wanted Pigs in a blanket from The Doughnut Place, easy enough. (K2 was in mid chew)

Birthday crowns from school are the best. Living in a same town has its perks, we went to the Post Office and the sweet mail lady gave her candy and a nice older man gave her $5, she was so excited.
Hard to believe this sweet baby is already 6 years old. I have loved every moment of being this sweet and sassy girls mom.

We had a small birthday party filled with some of our favorite people. Her favorite part of her parties is when everyone sings her Happy Birthday.

K3 started dance this week, something about her in tu-tus and big bows makes this, momma's heart smile. she was to excited to get to the dance studio for pictures.
Thanks to my sweet friend Katie for snapping this adorable photo. I always feel like I am running around like a mad woman during my girls parties, anyone else feel like this??

This will be me with the cooler weather we are suppose to have today and this weekend. 

Happy Friday and almost weekend lovelies, I hope you all have a fabulous long weekend planned.
XO, Ladymvega
